This tropical African destination is fast becoming a sailor’s dream because you can island hop, stopping to sleep when and where you like.

Sailing on a traditional dhow

Yes, sailing on a traditional dhow is fun! And we offer scheduled sail safaris and packages or you can tailor make your own according to your honeymoon, family reunion or fun friend holiday needs.

Come and see the beautiful Bazaruto Archipelago and its several idyllic islands. Sailing on a traditional dhow around Benguerra Island is probably the best thing you will do all year! We also offer extraordinary yacht safaris for travellers like you who may prefer this kind of luxury hotel on the water.

Find your choice of world class beaches, luxury accommodation, dive sites, deep sea fishing activities – and of course the ultimate relaxation.

We can take you island hopping on board a dhow, kitted out with all your scuba diving and snorkelling gear. Jump on and off your sailboat and swim for hours, maybe with dolphins!

Then dock at one of the fancy lodges on the island for a night or two and a meal to satisfy all hunger cravings. We suggest Azura Benguerra – a unique accommodation venue where you are indulged by professional staff and where solitude is the name of the game.

Some enticing facts about Benguerra Island:
